>> A Danish beer company's launched a unique brew, incorporating an unlikely ingredient in production, recycled urine. Reuter's intrepid reporter Julie Astrid Thompson takes the ultimate taste test.>> We are here at Naple in Hillhoosena in Copenhagen Denmark and today, the Pisner Beer, that is not Pilsner, it is Pisner, it's being launched and the first people get to taste it.

>> As of now, there are no plans to expand this operation with the beer whatsoever. But Naple has planned to sell the beer in selected stores around Denmark.
